Re: An honest test - it shows competitors are not too bad

Yes the test showed that the original design is the best - but it also showed that at least two of the competitors aren't quite as bad as you could suspect. So if this was a marketing attempt- which some of the posters in this thread seem to believe - it may have the opposite effect. It seems that at least some of the competitors are good enough to be considered, regarding the lower price. So I really think this was an honest test. Thanks to the Op for that.

If people look at my tests and conclude that one of the non-Metabones products offers good value for the money, and purchase accordingly, then I'm perfectly OK with that.  I'd call that an informed buying decision, which is something I strongly encourage.

And maybe the buyer of a cheap variety after having played with it for a while finds that this is a real good idea and wants the real thing!
